Darkstalkers Cosplay: Lilith Aensland (Ushijima Iiniku) Cosplay 01 NOV 2014

Usually Japanese cosplayer and exhibitionist Iiniku Ushijima can be found taking selfies in the mirror in various stages of undress. This time around though, she’s fully clothed and wearing the garb of Lilith Aensland, the slightly more cheerful sister of Darkstalker’s Morrigan Aensland.

Lilith Aensland is a creation of Jedah spawning from his theft of a segment of power that Belial Aensland had previously split from Morrigan and sealed away in an isolated location in order to keep his daughter’s total formidable power from raging out of control. However, after Belial’s death, the stashed power suspiciously develops a will of its own. Jedah attempts to capitalize on this turn of events by stealing the power and crafting it a physical form that would become Lilith, herself a succubus and essentially a younger, childlike clone of Morrigan. In exchange for being given life, she would lure Morrigan and the other Darkstalkers into Majigen, which she identifies as her birthplace. Lilith lives blissfully until realizing she is not an original being but merely a part of another person. Meanwhile, Morrigan does not feel as close a connection to Lilith as much as the other way around; in response, Jedah manipulates Lilith to meet Morrigan in person so he can use them both to extend his power, but Lilith becomes aware that Jedah has been lying to her in regards to her existence.

Lilith, whose name was inspired by the mythological Lilith, was designed as a female character but Darkstalkers 3 scenario writer/planner Haruo Murata wanted her to be a hermaphrodite or a “male daughter” with a shorter hair and a completely flat chest; when the game was released, the character’s gender was officially listed as “unknown”. Lilith has made crossover appearances in Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars, Pocket Fighter, Capcom Fighting Evolution, Namco x Capcom, and Cross Edge, usually appearing together with Morrigan.

Darkstalkers, is a series of 2D fighting games developed and published by Capcom, beginning with Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors in 1994. The series is set in a pastiche Gothic horror universe and features a highly stylized, cartoonish graphic style. It features characters based on either various kinds of monsters (the titular “darkstalkers”) or their hunters, who are all engaging in combat against each other.

Besides video games, the Darkstalkers media franchise also includes an anime miniseries, an American cartoon TV series, a Canadian comic book series, and many books of various kinds and other media released only in Japan.

Cosplay Sundae: Lilith (Darkstalkers) Cosplay 04 APR 2010

Morrigan Aensland was always tradionally Capcom’s hot female fighting character in their popular Darkstalkers fighting game franchise, and so to build on that they eventually introduced Lilith, Morrigan’s “lighter” counterpart.

Lilith is essentially a rather cheerful succubus who was originally a part of Morrigan’s substantially darker soul. Released and given a much smaller frame by Jedah, Lilith was in fact originally formed from part of Morrigan’s power that had been sealed away by Belial. Eventually becoming self-aware over a period of 10 years (though with a limited emotional development), Lilith learned of her dependence on Morrigan’s existence in order to appear in this world. Eager to become fully realised in this realm, Lilith continues to seek Morrigan out in order to join with her in the hopes of gaining this necessary power.

As per usual, this week I once again present an unknown cosplayer to you, but as you can see, I’ve plenty of reason to bring her up. An excellent Lilith don’t you think? ;)
